Chef Chris of Chris’s Kitchen 101 Discusses the Importance of Nutritional Education


New York City, New York–Chris’s Kitchen 101 has become a one-stop platform for individuals looking for recipes and nutrition/wellness consulting with a personal touch. The brand, which is owned by Chef Christopher Sinclair-McCalla, operates through their ever-growing social media presence as well as the company’s website. Chef Chris maintains a BS in Dietetics and Nutrition and actively teaches and demonstrates the importance of a healthy and balanced meal.

Through its health and wellness consulting, Chris’s Kitchen 101 has been able to help individuals create a personalized nutrition plan that works for their unique needs and lifestyle. This may include guidance on making healthy food choices, meal planning, and even support for managing chronic health conditions such as diabetes or heart disease.

CEO Chef Chris expresses his love for food and the culinary arts, and how throughout his adolescence, he became enamored with weight loss, leading to an extreme dieting lifestyle. However, while attending college, Chris developed the skills and knowledge needed to feel good about eating and enjoying food through his courses, and wanted to make others feel this way as well.

“I was finally feeling empowered to take control of my own health and wellness,” Chef Chris explains. “And, when I did – it was like a switch flipped for me. I learned that I could cook and bake amazing and delicious low calorie, nutrient dense foods that I enjoy.”

With firsthand experience, this company understands that making changes to improve one’s health can be challenging, and so the health and wellness consulting services are designed to provide individuals with the support and accountability they need to stay on track and achieve their health goals. By offering both culinary education and health and wellness consulting, Chris’s Kitchen 101 is able to provide a comprehensive approach to health and wellbeing that empowers individuals to take control of their health and make lasting changes for the better.

Chris Kitchen 101 shares the founder’s passions about creating nutrient dense lower calorie foods. They express that if they can teach more and more people how to cook in a healthy and nutritious way, then the climbing number of obesity rates, diabetes, strokes, etc, is expected to go down. The correlation of individuals consuming less macronutrients and more micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) will help build a higher number of healthy citizens. 

“Globally, we are consuming a lot more than our bodies actually need,” Chef Chris starts, “and this results in weight gain, hypertension, and renal failure to name a few. If we were all more educated knowing what we can do to still be able to enjoy the foods we love by just using what I call ‘ healthy ingredient substitutions’ then we’ll be able to enjoy eating and exercising without it feeling like a task.”

At Chris’s Kitchen 101, Chef Chris’s love of food, teaching, and nutrition all come together. His goal is to help anyone find their way into the kitchen, as he anticipates teaching people how to make low calorie, nutrient dense, delicious food that they will love.

Chris’s Kitchen 101 is a culinary education company founded by Chef Christopher Sinclair McCalla. The company offers online cooking classes, recipes, and cooking tips for those who want to learn how to cook or improve their cooking skills.
